The newly appointed representative for kidnapped and missing Israelis, Gal Hirsch, says in a message that “we are creating a full situational picture and are working at full strength to create an effective system” for families to turn to.

The statement appears to be in response to numerous complaints that the government has abandoned those with loved ones missing or kidnapped, offering no help or information.

“We have heavy missions ahead of us, and I am with you in the campaign to bring all the missing and kidnapped back home to Israel,” he says.
